At the NUST MISIS FabLab, graduates of Russia`s first Master`s Degree program “Materials & Technologies of Digital Production” have presented their results of the #MANTACANOPY project, which was implemented under the leadership of Professor Giuseppe Fallacara, a maestro of architectural design from the Polytechnic of Bari (Italy).
NUST MISIS and Vnesheconombank (VEB) will launch a Center of Competencies for New Materials and Breakthrough Technologies with a primary focus on blockchain, convergent (NBICS), and quantum technologies. The accumulation of knowledge about innovative technologies, the development of platforms for use in government organizations, and the training and popularization of those fields will be the Center`s main goals. This is the world`s first center with a combination of such competencies, and the main consumer of its services will likely be Russian state-owned companies and authorities.
Arkady Dvorkovich, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, recently opened the NUST MISIS Center for Industrial Prototyping of High Complexity. During his opening ceremony speech, the Deputy Prime Minister noted that the Center is at a global level in its expertise.
A group of scientists from NUST MISIS, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and the Medical Nanotechnology Company led by Dr. Alexander Majouga have started preclinical trials of Russia`s first technology for oncological therapy on the basis of iron oxide nanomedicines, combining the capabilities of hyperthermia and chemical therapy.
For the first time, NUST MISIS has entered the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities by Subject for 2017. The University is listed in the group of “76-100” in the Metallurgical Engineering subject. Only five Russian universities managed to enter the top-100 of Shanghai`s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects for 2017.
For the first time, the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs and the Nanosertifika have conducted a certification exam at NUST MISIS — 20 graduates of the University have received specialist certificates for testing nanoindustry products.
The Elsevier publishing house published a fundamental work which brings together all the latest knowledge about one of the most promising technologies of the 21st century — “The Encyclopedia of Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis”.
NUST MISIS plans to launch a laboratory to implement projects for collaborations on LHCb and SHiP experiments. Its employees will work on the implementation of four major projects — two of them through LHCb collaboration and the other two through SHiP collaboration. The department will be led by CERN project managers.
Scientists from the NUST MISIS Energy Efficiency Center have developed an efficient and quick way to produce the material from which high-efficient thermoelectric generators used for spacecrafts are made. The material is able to directly convert thermal energy into electrical energy.
